Subject: Aerial Spraying for Mosquitoes 

The City of Smyer is very happy to announce that as a part of a coalition of regional cities we have arranged for aerial spraying for mosquitoes. When the plane flies will be determined by wind speeds and ambient temperature. Given these factors, we hope to have aerial spraying during July, in the overnight hours. The company that will spray is Vector Disease Control International and this is their specialty.  

Mosquitoes are most active after sundown. The aerial spray catches them in the air and is highly effective. The method and timing of aerial spraying protects beneficial insects because they are not active at night.

Your city is committed to the health and comfort of our citizens. We are working hard to control the presence of mosquitoes in order to prevent mosquito-borne diseases. Aerial spraying is just one aspect of our prevention program. We will continue our other mosquito abatement measures throughout the summer.

Please call or us with your questions or concerns. 

Thank you!
